Posey, Ida Kathryn (Marriage - 7 August 1954)


Now on a honeymoon trip of a few weeks in Mexico and southern United States are Rev. and Mrs. Roger Steiner, who were married at Lititz, Pennsylvania, at 2 p.m. Saturday, August 7.


The bride, Ida Kathryn Posey, wore a gown of white embroidered organdy over taffeta and carried a white orchid and a white Bible.


Miss Posey chose her sister, Mrs. Robert Snyder of Bethlehem, Pa., to be her matron of honor.  Mrs. Snyder wore a gown of an aqua-blue organdy and carried an old-fashioned bouquet of yellow rose buds.


Two nieces of the bride, Miss Pamela Posey and Miss Margaret Louise Snyder, were flower girls. 


Richard C. Stork, Landisville, Pa., a former college roommate of the groom, served as best man.  The ushers were Harvey L. Manning, Hummelstown, Pa., a friend of the groom, and Donald McCollough, Lancaster, brother-in-law of the bride.


Officiating at the double-ring ceremony, were Bishop Carl J. Helmich, pastor of the Moravian Church at Lititz, and Dr. Byron K. Horne, president of Linden Hall, Moravian Girls School.


Robert Posey, brother of the bride, gave her in marriage.


Soloist for the services was Mrs. Garand J. Evenwel and Mrs. Kenneth Witmyer was organist.


A reception for 70 guests was held at the home of the bride’s mother, Mrs. Silas Robert Posey.


Among the guests from a distance were Mr. and Mrs. J. R. Steiner, Loyal, parents of the groom.


The bride’s mother wore a dress of gray and pink chiffon with a corsage of pink rosebuds. The groom’s mother wore navy blue with matching accessories and a corsage of yellow rosebuds.


The bride attended Pain Hall for Medical assistants in New York City and for the past several years has worked as a medical assistant in New York City.  She also attended Peabody Conservatory of Music at Baltimore, Maryland, and did vocal solo and choral work in various churches in New York City.


The groom is a graduate of the Loyal High School and Franklin and Marshall College at Lancaster, Pa., and Union Theological Seminary in New York City.  He is affiliated with Phi Beta Kappa, noted honorary society with membership awarded for scholarship.  He was a clergyman in New York Methodist Churches for seven years and is now pastor of the Methodist Churches at New Lisbon, Necedah and Dellwood.  When Mr. and Mrs. Steiner return from their wedding trip, they will be at home at the Methodist parsonage in New Lisbon.
